Pals Paper Arts 159

Saturday! My work free, glorious Saturday! How are you today? I’m doing well. I’m off to the Hampton’s this morning with my friend Chantal. She has a beautiful house in the Springs in East Hampton. It’s supposed to be a nice day today and for most of the day tomorrow too. I’ll be blogging from out East tomorrow as we say here on Long Island. As I sat down to make my Pals Paper Arts card I was going through my mental inventory (which is dicey to say the least!) and I remembered an oldie but goodie!

Today’s post – Pals Paper Arts 159, a sketch from Margaret Moody…

PPA 159

The base of my card is Baja Breeze Card Stock, which I apparently hoarded at some point, I have a lot left! The paper is from the Patio Party Designer Series Paper Pack. For the greeting I used the once controversial Carry On Stamp Set, the crown is also from that set. A piece of Summer Starfruit 3/8″ Stitched Sating Ribbon goes across the middle of the card. The two tiny butterflies are from the Collage Curios Stamp Set and are cut out with my Paper Snips. Just a reminder that all of these products will become “Vintage” as of June 3rd, you get some extra time to order as well being able to order from the Spring Catalog and the new 2013-2014 Catalog. This year they did an overlap! Thank you for coming to see my Pals Paper Arts card form this week’s sketch challenge. Enjoy your Saturday! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
